"Dating back to 18th-century England, the custom of blending pale and dark beers has kept the 'Black and Tan' a favorite of experienced beer drinkers for centuries.
The famous recipe combines a robust English porter with a fine Continental Pilsner, preserving the character of each, while creating the classic taste of the legendary 'Black and Tan'. In true American style, they bring you the best of both beers as they meet in Missisippi Mud.
This pours out of the moonshine jug a dark rich brown that does allow some light to pass through. The head it develops with a vigorous pour is average, with slight lacing and a nice caramel color.
The chocolate and coffee scents standard to a porter are immediately noticeable. Some hops finally made their way through after a few good inhales. The porter and the pilsner are both evident in the nose.
This beer shows up with slightly smoky coffee flavors, with just a bit of chocolate. Itís somewhat light bodied. Not quite medium-bodied, but not far off. There is slightly above average carbonation but itís not too much, really. There is a crisp finish to the beer which I see as the pilsner making its presence known.
